Evidence: Forensic Photography as Art

by Katherine

Artist Angela Strassheim began her career as a forensic photographer in a crime lab. She soon left to focus on art full-time, but she didn’t entirely leave the field behind. Her body of work, Evidence, is a documentary art project created using forensic techniques. The striking, sometimes disturbing images ask the question: after a tragic event, what remains?

To hear more about her process, watch an interview with Strassheim below. Evidence is on display at the Minneapolis Institute of Art through October 11, 2011.

You can find more of Strassheim’s beautiful and intriguing work on her website here.
